Dear friends and colleagues,

this newsletter is mostly a brief announcement FOR OUR UPCOMING MEETING and we keep it short:

SAVE THE DATE – MAY 18th-20th

The next Music Theatre NOW Meeting will take place at Operadagen Festival Rotterdam and you can join us for three inspiring days, meet the winning projects of our competition, see wonderful shows of new music theatre and enjoy the lively atmosphere of the "quirky dutch festival" (that's how Financial Times described Operadagen).

Make sure to register before
FEBRUARY 27th and find all details and links BELOW or HERE

Well, in order to make it short: that's it for now.

Looking forward to seeing all of you soon in Rotterdam.

All the best
(for the team of Music Theatre NOW)

PS: We announced the winner of Music Theatre NOW 2018 end of last year.
Haven't had a chance to check it out? – HAVE A LOOK!!!

From the jury statement:

We feel that the definition of the music theatre as a genre shouldn’t align to one direction only. […] Intersectionality and heterogeneity is what we would propose as the characteristics at the core of the music theatre practice today."
